We depart following the coastal road to the Corinth Canal for a short stop. The Corinth Canal, which connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea, is just amazing and you can enjoy wonderful views and take some of the best pictures you have ever taken!
After you have taken some pictures of the Corinth Canal, we will drive on and visit the theatre of Epidaurus, one of the most famous ancient Greek theatres with astounding acoustics. There you will listen to the history of this miraculous construction that is really worth its international fame.
After that we will get on our bus to visit the town of Nafplio for a short stop. Nafplio was the capital of the First Hellenic Republic and of the Kingdom of Greece, from the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 until 1834. We will then drive on to Mycenae and visit the Archaeological Site and the Tomb of Agamemnon. Then we will depart for Olympia through Central Peloponnese and the towns of Tripolis and Megalopolis. We will sleep in Olympia, the cradle of the Olympic Games, where you will also enjoy your well-deserved dinner!
In the 2nd day of our Greece Classical Tour we will visit the Archaeological Site of Olympia with the Sanctuary of Olympian Zeus, the Ancient Stadium and the
Archaeological Museum. Then we will drive on through the plains of Elia and Achaia until the magnificent Rion – Antirion bridge which is crossing the
Corinthian Bay connecting Rion to Antirion. Our route continues through the picturesque towns of Nafpactos and Itea until we arrive in Delphi, the navel (or centre) of the world, according to the Greeks, as represented by its stone monument known as the Omphalos (navel) of Delphi.
And this is how this 2nd day ends with a nice dinner for you and your family/ friends.
In the last day of the Greece Classical Tour we will take some time in the morning to visit the Archaeological Site of Delphi and the Museum of Delphi. Delphi was the famous ancient sanctuary that grew rich as the seat of Pythia, the fortune-teller who was consulted about important decisions in the ancient classical world. Today Delphi is an extensive archaeological site with an adjacent modern town. It is recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in having had a phenomenal influence in the ancient world, as evidenced by the rich monuments built there by most of the important ancient Greek city-states, demonstrating their fundamental Hellenic unity.
